Butterscotch Fruit Fondue

Introduction

If ever you've bought fruit in the spirit of hope, only to discover, when you get home, that though it may be brightly hued it is disappointingly dimly flavoured, this is the uplifting solution. Anything, frankly, dunked into butterscotch sauce tastes good, but even the crunchiest, sharpest strawberry comes alive when dipped into its buttery sweetness.

For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.
